Are all closing costs the same or will different lenders have lower fees etc.

I want to know what the typical range for closing costs should be because I've been wanting to back out of my current mortgage company whos GFE had down over $10K in "other" costs for a $200K townhome. Is this normal??

That sounds extremely high. Are they charging you discount points to buy the rate down ? There is a difference between closing costs from a lender and 3rd party fees and/or prepaids such as insurance, property taxes. Additionally, it depends if this is a purchase or refinance since you will have transfer taxes here in Illinois. Typical 200K loan refinance from our company, Lamb Financial, would break down as such. Appraisal $250-450 (depends on loan type, FHA, VA or conventional). Title Fees $500-$750, Lender Fee $500-$895. Prepaids for insurance and taxes - depends on your county, but these are not fees as this is your money.
